“There is no sincerer love than the love of food,” said George Bernard Shaw. Orphaned when his unhappy father dies suddenly, a dreamy young ramen chef in Japan begins a culinary odyssey to learn about his family and how to make the beloved pork rib soup of his childhood. Masato heads to Singapore for the first time since he was ten and discovers its incredible food culture with the help of his pal and food blogger Miki. With her, he deciphers his mother’s diary, finds his wonderful Uncle Wee (who teaches him the family’s famed soup), and meets his formidable grandmother, Madam Lee. Through it all, the loving preparation of food unites and enlightens. With flashbacks to his parents’ salad days and lessons in Japanese-Chinese antipathy, the mouth-watering Ramen Shop acknowledges good food as a universal language.  Beautiful, delicious, and delightful, it is truly “food for the heart and soul.”
